^^I'm pretty sure Psyclone at SFMM didn't exist yet when this video was made.

Great vid! It was neat seeing all the rides that no longer exist, and I particularly liked the clips of CP. ;)

When the narrator said "quiet, respectable bathhouses" it took me right out of the segment.

Hellooooooo, belly dancers! Leave it to Busch to make sure kids AND their dads are entertained.

Great stuff, Shane! I remember salivating over the ubiquitous pictures of Python in the corkscrews as a kid. It just looked SO COOL. Imagine my anticipointment when I finally got to ride it in 2005.

I love how this park has expanded, and I think it's one hypercoaster short of being one of the best parks in the country. That said, it's still a little sad to see how the wildlife area of the park has contracted as the "fun" part of the park has expanded. The whole InBev thing makes me wonder if the animals will be part of the long-term plan for whoever purchases the Busch parks.
